The Ethel Jean Jackson Health Education Practice Award was created to honor Ethel Jean Jackson on the occasion of her retirement from the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education, in 1998. The award, "for exemplary public health education practice and commitment to working with underserved populations", was first presented at Ethel Jean's March 20, 1998 retirement celebration at the Carolina Innn (video of award presentation). In 1999 a fund was established “to support students in the Department of Health Education and Health Behavior (School of Public Health) who demonstrate strong commitment and effective action in health education practice", with preference given to "students serving in disadvantaged communities and communities of color".
The following students have received the Ethel Jean Jackson Health Education Practice Award:
